When Nollywood actress, Lizzy Anjorin converted to Islam, nobody knew the reasons even though some speculated it was because of a man, which she denied.
Finally, the actress has opened up on her conversion.
In four Instagram posts, Lizzy explained that her mother was born into a Muslim family, but because of the churches they slept when they were going through hard times, they automatically became Christians. In fact, her mother still attended church before she passed on.
So, when her mother died, she requested that the pastors of the churches she attended should bury her that night because her mother had warned that she didn’t want to be kept in a mortuary.
But all the pastors denied her mother, saying she wasn’t a member of their church.
“So, please call me Mama Pastor. They called almost 10 Pastors, once they look at Mama’s face. She is not our member. I was mad at everything and it almost turned into riot. Someone confronted one of the Pastor. You are a bad person. You are always fond of collecting all the money her daughter used to send to Mama. Someone took me to 3 Churches that night, they all said she can’t be buried in their cemetery because she is not a member of their church,” she said.
Lizzy explained that it was a Muslim cleric that prayed for her mother before she was buried. She was also surrounded by Muslim brethren who consoled and prayed with her.
Although she loves the Christian brethren, the experience she had with them during the burial of her mother is really heartbreaking for her.
